Robe's Pension House

Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Robe's Pension House in Landon St. is in good company. Along the street are several pension houses like LS, LC, JL Suites, among others. It's perpendicular to Osmena Blvd, which is one of the main veins of Cebu downtown, leading to the Rotunda.
Location-wise, a jeepney route passes along Don Pedro Cui St, which slices across Landon St. Few steps from the hotel lobby is an internet cafe (open til late) and a bakery.
The lobby is simple but designed well. No harsh lights, and a few sofa sets and tables on the side. There's always a guard by the door, and an attendant at front desk.
Stairs for healthy heart. Clean and bright tiles and polished rails.
The corridors are same story. Maintained and fuss-free.
Deluxe Rooms are good for 2, single/double bed and goes for only Php800. This one has hot water, Standard Rooms have none. There's TV, table and chair, closet, vanity with mirror.
Closet with 2 bath towels and a few hangers.
Cable TV and service phone.
Free bottled water (1st day only). Two glasses on a tray.

Robe's Pension House Room Service Menu
Bathroom is adequately sized. No water supply problem. No bidet, but that's fine. The shower hose came useful.
Functional lavatory, free toilet paper and soap.
Remarks:
  1. This one is a winner in most aspects. Price is cheap but offers big rooms. Amenities are complete and clean. They have room service, though limited. There's a vendo machine at the lobby with drinks and snacks.
  2. Having hot water was the selling point for us. Most pension houses have no heated water option. Some have but with much steeper rate. This one is not too greedy.
  3. We got to use their free WiFi from our room. It didn't lag much. Good enough to check emails, but not for fast surfing. 
  4. Location is good.  Only one jeep ride to and from Ayala Center. Taxis pass by the area a lot, anytime.
  5. Staff are few but you always see them around, cleaning or running errands. Not overly friendly but do attend to guests at all times.
  6. Recommended? Yup. Suits the budget and perfect for short stays.
